Climate Reality Leaders are an extraordinary group of people from around the world that are unified around the same cause, spreading the truth about climate change and inspiring action on the climate crisis. Climate Reality Leaders are trained by the Chairman and Founder of the Climate Reality Project, former Vice President Al Gore to educate others about climate change and tackle the crisis head on. They’re engaging their communities with Acts of Leadership, building networks of truth, and inspiring solutions and action in their communities.
There are now nearly 6000 trained Climate Reality Leaders in more than 100 countries educating their communities about climate change and with the hope that the movement will continue to grow.
Ordinary people face challenges. Climate Reality Leaders embrace them. The Climate Reality Leadership Corps is a global network of activists committed to taking on the climate crisis and solving the greatest threat humanity has ever faced. The program takes great leaders and makes them exceptional, providing the training in climate science, communications, and organizing to tell the story of climate change and inspire communities everywhere to take action. The result is a dynamic group of world-changers shaping the conversation on climate in forums from family dinners to international summits and building a 21st-century movement for solutions.
Two Nigerians became ‘Climate Leaders’ in summer of 2013 and were trained in the historical and beautiful city of Istanbul, Turkey by Nobel Laureate Al Gore, former US vice President and Chairman of the Climate Reality Corps, USA.
Since the training, they have been committed to promoting the climate change conversation within the Nigerian community and through social media by starting up discussions, promoting adaptation to climatic impacts and proffering sustainable solutions.
By joining the Climate Reality Leadership Corps at the upcoming training in Johannesburg, South Africa March 12-14, you will join a very select group of world changers who have come together to confront the greatest issue of our time, the one that will define us to future generations. You bring commitment to this cause backed by a long list of accomplishments. This training is your opportunity to take your skills to the next level and go from great to truly exceptional.
During the training, you’ll learn from Al Gore and a group of world-class scientists, strategists, communicators, and organizers about the science of climate change and how to talk to people across the continent about the ways this crisis affects them personally—and what can be done to solve it. You’ll learn how to combine science and solutions, organizing techniques proven by decades of social movements with a 21st-century approach to outreach through storytelling, public speaking, social media networking, and media engagement.
Over the course of the training, you’ll meet trained Climate Reality Leaders with experience in organizing and presenting who come from various professional backgrounds and learn from their experience. You will also meet an incredible group of exceptionally motivated individuals training alongside you including public servants, business people, academics, activists, non-profit professionals, educators, and more. We can’t promise exactly what comes next, but we can promise these three days will change your life.
